Despite this, he feared the Roar of the Elders to the point of giving up on his goals, which he sometimes does.

Role in the series
Ora first appears when the Lion Guard arrives on the island for the first time when they arrive on his home, where he wastes no time in trying to find food to which Makini getting Tuliza for Kion notices the giant lizard preparing to attack. Ono then gives a warning that Ora is not really dragon but rather a large lizard to which he explains that Komodo dragons have venomous bites when they strike their prey. Bunga then takes risk in taking on Ora in which he is then joined by two other Komodo dragons to help accompany him in which all three Komodo dragons are blasted away by Kion's Roar, which also briefly blasted the ocean around them as well as Fuli tells him to stop as he is causing a big mess around the island.
While trying to bring Lumba-Lumba back to the ocean, Ora is then revealed to have survived his encounter with the Lion Guard where he and his two followers attempt to eat the stranded dolphin. While looking at the next moja kwa moja stone pointing to a cliff with a tree on it, Anga notices that the Komodo dragons have survived Kion's roar and have planned to eat Lumba-Lumba to which Bunga confronts him and temporarily riding on him like a horse as he throws Bunga next to Lumba-Lumba, telling him that Kion is in trouble to which Lumba-Lumba helps Bunga by flipping him to a Komodo dragon cornering Kion. Ora then appears preparing to eat Bunga to which Bunga uses his stench to thwart him as Ono drops seaweed to blind him under Anga's command as Beshte knocks him into the water. Soon as the Lion Guard prepares to go to the next landmark, Kion plans to use his roar to bring Lumba-Lumba back to the ocean as the rest of the Guard reaches the path to the next landmark temporarily dividing the ocean into two as Ora and his followers plan to stop them. Kion then closes the path again to stop Ora and the two Komodo dragons from reaching, foiling them.
